The Pittsburgh Penguins, under new General Manager Kyle Dubas, are poised to reshape their roster, and they might just be considering a high-profile reunion to spark a turnaround.

Mitch Marner, after a less-than-stellar playoff performance, seems to have fallen out of favour with Toronto Maple Leafs fans. As the Leafs ponder major roster changes, rumours of Marner's potential departure are heating up.
For any trade to happen, Marner would have to waive his no-move clause, choosing a destination that appeals to him, and Pittsburgh could be on his list given the connection with Dubas.
Sports analyst Elliotte Friedman weighed in on the potential trade scenario:
'If they do make a Marner trade maybe they don't ‘win the trade' and get a stud defenseman," Friedman said. "But I would think a defenseman would be part of that package."
In Pittsburgh, Marner could find himself playing alongside former teammates or under familiar management, which might include a swap involving players like Ryan Graves, or goaltenders Tristan Jarry or Alex Nedeljkovic. The idea of Marner landing in Pittsburgh has gained traction following Toronto's recent playoff exit.
During a media session, Marner himself seemed open to new opportunities, hinting at his willingness to consider a move for a fresh start.
Everything now depends on Marner's decision regarding his no-move clause. If he's ready to waive it and the Penguins are willing to negotiate a strong offer, Pittsburgh could very well be his next hockey home, making them logical trade partners for the Leafs in this complex equation.
